攀登Rogers Pass兩高山湖(Rogers Pass Lake & Heart Lake),順登落磯山脈大陸分水嶺俯瞰Iceberg Lake(2014.08.09)

落磯山脈大陸分水嶺步道(Continental Divide Trail,簡稱CDT) 是一條北起加拿大沿著落磯山脈南伸直抵墨西哥的景觀步道,全長約3,100哩,共貫穿MontanaIdahoWyomingColoradoNew Mexico五個州,其中在科羅拉多州境內就達八百多哩,去年攀登King Lake 時就曾走了其中的一段High Lonesome Trail3哩路。

步道名稱:South Boulder Creek Trail(No.900)Rogers Pass TrailLoop Trail
登山口:Moffat Tunnel(East Portal Trailhead, 海拔約9,220)
距離:全程來回約12.4(19.84公里)
爬升高度:3,300/1,006公尺
登山口行車指南請瀏覽:登Clayton Lake(2014.08.02)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
行程記錄:
07:20 East Portal Trailhead出發,今天主要是沿South Boulder Creek Trail一路西南行,直到登上大陸分水嶺(Continental Divide)

East Portal Trailhead


07:52 抵達大草原 Arapaho Lakes Forest Lakes Trail 岔路(距登山口1.25 哩,海拔 9,555),取左直行。

08:15 Crater Lakes Trail 岔路(距登山口1.95 哩,海拔 9,930),取左上,登山步道在杉林中緩升。

08:27 過第一座橫跨小溪上有扶手之小橋,此處為Clayton LakeIceberg Lakes登山口,上禮拜六才帶貝貝由此登Clayton Lake (距登山口2.35 哩,海拔 10,090)

由於從Clayton LakeIceberg Lakes 路徑不明,今天打算走到落磯山脈大陸分水嶺俯瞰Iceberg Lakes,取左過橋續行。

Hiker or runner


08:43 抵第二座橫跨小溪上有扶手之小橋(距登山口2.45 哩,海拔 10,260)。過小橋後約30公尺右側有兩棵大杉木,中間一條小徑,入口處有一大倒木橫著,此為直上Heart Lake的小徑,四年前登Heart Lake時下山係走此路下山;取左直行。
09:15  抵第三座橫跨小溪上無扶手之小橋(距登山口3.48哩,海拔 10,774),橋右有小瀑布;


過小橋後步道坡度有點陡,還算好走。

South Boulder Creek Trail 

09:26 抵一立有“Camping prohibited within 100 feet of water”木牌處,前行數步跨過小溪(距登山口3.68哩,海拔 10,995),溪上以簡單四、五根樹幹橫跨其上,過小溪後隨即看到一條岔路往下切,不知通往何處,不予理會,續沿小溪右岸往上行。

09:40 Rogers Pass Lake左下方一無名小湖,湖邊野花盛開,James Peak矗立在後方,在此方向看James Peak山形特別美;

在步道右邊另有一座較大無名湖,湖邊石頭居多。

09:50 抵達Rogers Pass Lake(距登山口4.05哩,海拔 11,090),在湖的東岸有一些隱密的營地,更可展望Haystack Mountain (11,780) Rogers Pass (11,860) James Peak (13,294)

環湖一週後由北岸小徑上登稜線。

12:15 登上Rogers Pass Lake北岸稜線(距登山口4.35哩,海拔 11,347),向北俯瞰Heart Lake,往南回望Rogers Pass Lake

下去Heart Lake繞一圈後再接回South Boulder Creek Trail,今天計畫循Rogers Pass Trail登上大陸分水嶺(Continental Divide),然後沿著大陸分水嶺北行到Iceberg Lake後的山頭俯瞰Iceberg Lake

Heart Lake

Heart Lake登上大陸分水嶺約有半哩路,但須爬升約五百多呎,算是蠻陡的,登山小徑一路字形往上盤升。

11:20 北行至Corona TrailRogers Pass Trail的岔路(距登山口5哩,海拔 11,850),左下是Corona Trail通往James Peak Trailhead;取右上Rogers Pass Trail走在落磯山脈大陸分水嶺上(地圖上標示Loop Trail)

Corona Trail (CDT) - Rogers Pass Trail split


Loop Trail沒有明顯的路徑,但每約兩三百呎處便堆有一堆石堆,上插一根木頭為記,整條路徑大致在等高線上的苔原、亂石堆中盤升,除非你刻意要登上路右的無名山頭。

12:10 下抵一小鞍部,海拔約12,080/3,682公尺,在此已可清楚俯瞰Iceberg Lakes,但還不能看到在其下方上星期帶小外孫貝貝去攀登的Clayton Lake

Iceberg Lakes共有南、北兩大湖及其東、北零星分布的四個小湖,南、北兩大湖的北湖湖面湛藍一片,而南湖湖面則終年飄浮著小冰山,Iceberg Lakes因此而名。
看完Iceberg Lakes後續往北行,打算登上Iceberg Lakes西邊最高山頭俯瞰更完整的Iceberg LakesClayton Lake
12:22 登上Iceberg Lakes西邊最高山頭,此處海拔約12,150/3,703公尺,距登山口約6.2哩,站在此山頭向東俯瞰完整的Iceberg Lakes及其下方的Clayton Lake,就連遠在山抵下的登山口也可清楚望見。
